While QB Matt McGloin has generally played well since becoming the starter, Sunday was the first time he caused the Raiders major pain.

“It’s tough when a quarterback is going through a learning process,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said. “As the losses mount up, it gets frustrating. It’s frustrating for everybody.”

McGloin threw two interceptions to Chiefs safety Eric Berry, the first of which was returned 47 yards for a touchdown. He threw two more in the fourth quarter, on successive series, the last of which got him benched.

Terrelle Pryor filled in at different times – once near the goal line, again in the third quarter and after McGloin’s fourth pick – as a planned change of pace. Pryor wasn’t much better, and threw an interception in four attempts. He competed one pass for 12 yards and had 19 rushing yards on three carries.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite being pulled, Allen said McGloin start again next week against the San Diego Chargers. Odds are great he’ll also start the season finale against Denver, too. He's a QB2 option as long as INTs don't count against you. He should put up some garbage numbers, most likely trying to bring the Raiders from behind.

HC Dennis Allen said Matt McGloin will be the Raiders starting quarterback against the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

Beat writer Vic Tafur later Monday tweeted McGloin will start the final three games with Terrelle Pryor getting some spot duty. The team obviously wants to see what they have in McGloin. The Raiders get KC, San Diego and Denver the final three weeks.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he is inclined to stick with Matt McGloin at quarterback for now, without signing off on McGloin for final 4 games.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders have some packages for Terrelle Pryor even if McGloin starts. Seems like the team would like to get as much info as they can on these guys for the future, but it looks like McGloin could start at least in Week 14.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was well enough to be active and serve as Matt McGloin's backup against Tennessee.

He also had a package of plays the Raiders could have used, but HC Dennis Allen felt it better to give him another week of rest -- hence the use of Marcel Reece as the wildcat quarterback instead of Pryor.

Fantasy Impact:

Something to watch for Thursday against the Cowboys. Pryor won't be a starting fantasy option, but if you're playing McGloin, it could certainly take away from his production.

Matt McGloin will get another start

Raiders HC Dennis Allen says Matt McGloin will start at QB for Raiders vs. Cowboys on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a pretty good matchup against the Cowboys but McGloin will likely fall as a middle of the road QB2. He played pretty well in a tough matchup against the Titans and at this point the team wants to see what they may have in McGloin over Terrelle Pryor.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 12. Matt McGloin will start against the Titans. He tossed three touchdowns last week against the Texans but isn't a trustworthy start just yet. Pryor may be active as McGloin's backup in Week 12.

Thursday, November 21, 2013, 6:49pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Matt McGloin will start against the Titans. He tossed three touchdowns last week against the Texans but isn't a trustworthy start just yet. Pryor may be active as McGloin's backup in Week 12.

When Raiders RB Darren McFadden does return, it's become clear he'll have to wait his turn.

"(Rashad Jennings has) been a guy we've called on to come in and run the ball and he's done a great job at it,'' Allen said. "As he continues to run the ball like he's doing, he's going to continue to get opportunities to run the ball.''

Fantasy Impact:

Jennings signed as an unrestricted free agent after averaging 2.8 yards per carry in Jacksonville last season. Jennings has 340 yards on 57 carries, averaging 6.0 yards per carry in his last three games. He is second to Terrelle Pryor in rushing with 480 yards. He has a couple of very favorable matchups in Weeks 12 and 13 with Tennessee and Dallas on the schedule.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was back in the Bay Area on Sunday morning nursing illness and a sprained knee, watching backup Matt McGloin lead his team to victory.

Must’ve been a pretty sight. Until reality set in.

McGloin was so good during a 28-23 win over the Houston Texans that undrafted rookie might’ve taken Pryor’s job.

While head coach Dennis Allen wouldn’t say whether he did or not, there’s no doubt the Raiders have a quarterback controversy on their hands.

“Here’s what I’m going to do; I’m going to enjoy this win,” Allen said. “Then we’ll go back and we’ll evaluate. Matt definitely did a very good job today.”

Fantasy Impact:

The undrafted rookie from Penn State was 18-of-32 passing for 197 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions and a 105.9 quarterback rating in his first NFL start. He likely won't be better than a QB2 option if he indeed gets more playing time going forward. It's a tough matchup Week 12 against the Titans.

Matt McGloin to start for Raiders

Battling a nagging knee injury, Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Houston Texans.

Coach Dennis Allen acknowledged that Pryor encountered a setback on Friday after sharing reps with rookie Matt McGloin in Thursday's practice.

Although Allen had been holding out hope, team sources told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that all signs pointed to McGloin making his first NFL start once Pryor missed Friday's practice.

As Gregg Rosenthal pointed out, a battle between undrafted quarterbacks McGloin and Case Keenum would be a rematch of the Penn State-Houston TicketCity Bowl in January 2012.

Fantasy Impact:

Obviously there are a lot of question marks about McGloin, but the undrafted rookie out of Penn State, was 7-for-15 for 87 yards in the fourth quarter against the Eagles on Nov. 3 after Pryor left with the banged-up knee. McGloin was a different QB from his junior to senior year under former OC in New England and now current PSU head coach Bill Bradley. He impressed the Raiders enough that he became the QB2.

Friday, November 15, 2013, 6:00pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 11. Matt McGloin would start against the Texans if Pryor can't play. The Oakland beat writers believe Pryor will be out this week.

Thursday, November 14, 2013, 6:02pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Pryor's knee is an issue and he hasn't played very well since the injury. Matt McGloin would start against the Texans if Pryor can't play, though it looks like Pryor is trending in the right direction.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013, 6:19pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Pryor's knee is an issue. He's tentatively expected to start, but hasn't played very well since the injury.

Terrelle Pryor has sprained MCL

Sunday, November 10, 2013, 9:39pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has a sprained MCL in his right knee, he said after the Raiders' 24-20 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.

"My knee is banged up," he said.

"I've got a sprained MCL. It just got worse during the week. So I was just trying to come out and play and try to help the team but just didn't feel well today."

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor sprained the knee last week and said it got worse during the week leading up to the Giants game. Pryor added he couldn't get any push off his leg and couldn't explode in the passing game. The only other quarterback on the Raiders' active roster is undrafted rookie Matt McGloin out of Penn State, while fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson is on the practice squad. The Raiders worked out veterans David Carr, Trent Edwards and Pat White last month.
